OUAI Haircare

I've been following celebrity hairstylist, Jen Atkin, for quite some time now and when she revealed that she was bringing out her own line of products I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! With clients like Kendall Jenner, Gigi, and Bella Hadid I knew I could trust Jen with creating the best haircare on the market. She has created products that are revolutionizing the way we style our hair and I can't wait to see what other tricks she has up her sleeve!


I first picked up the OUAI Dry Shampoo to test out the line and I fell in love with it! I'm already on my second bottle because it is that good! It really adds volume to your hair without leaving a white powder residue while providing an amazing fragrance (it's so good Jen revealed they are releasing a perfume that matches the scent!!). I've gotten numerous compliments on the scent from friends and family who all love it as well! 
As for her most recent product launch, the Dry Shampoo Foam, I am equally as impressed. It's a dry shampoo on steroids that "works without water to thoroughly cleanse and refresh hair while adding instant volume". It has the same great fragrance and I honestly can't recommend these two products enough!

OUAI Haircare can be found at Sephora, Space NK, and their own website. I can't wait to try out even more products from this amazing line!

Alexis Ren x Colourpop
 We were so excited when our Alexis Ren x Colourpop shipment finally arrived. The highly demanded line is made up of beautiful matte lipsticks, lip gloss and an amazing bronzer-highlight duo.


The colors give a great payoff and are really comfortable to wear. It's really fab to find a great cosmetic line that does not cost a fortune!
Colourpop is a cruelty-free LA company that is really worth checking out. They do collabs quite often and recently did one with an LA no-kill shelter in which the proceeds made went to the animal shelter.

Their most recent collaboration is with one of my favorite Instagram-beauties, Alexis Ren. With 8 million followers on Instagram, it's safe to say she's quite loved. If somehow you are unaware of who Ren is, she is a model who has the perfect beach bod to match her Cali girl style.

The Alexis Ren x Colourpop collection suits the model perfectly with a golden highlighter to give a golden goddess glow. The collection is quite simple and allows someone to look naturally stunning. It embodies Alexis Ren's beach style and attitude.


Being Alexis Ren fans, we were so glad to see this collab happen!

NYFW Autumn/ Winter 2017

New York is the first to kick off fashion month and it certainly didn't disappoint this season! This post is providing my favorite designers paired with my favorite looks from each show. Key trends: velvet, silky slip dresses, PINK, funky boots, suits, and classic knits & outerwear staples.

ZIMMERMANN


Zimmermann never disappoints and always stays true to their ruffled and flowing designs, but always with extravagant fabrics and colors. (Can the pink ladies have that pink shearling jacket, pretty please?)

JONATHAN SIMKHAI


BEST SHOW OF THE SEASON - I WANT IT ALL!

THE ROW


Mary-Kate and Ashley always supply cool girl minimalism for The Row with a white, black, and beige palette. Also loving the next level Dr. Martens as the footwear!

BRANDON MAXWELL


This designer caught my eye last season and continues to provide the most cutting edge looks! Fabulous collection with the mercurial disco suit coated all over in Swarovski crystals as the standout look.

NARCISCO RODRIGUEZ 


This season he created silky sleek pieces that would definitely be seen in Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe once upon a time. 

ULLA JOHNSON


Feminine shapes and colors with amazing knits and outerwear.

LA PERLA


The lingerie brand was inspired by 'the artistic interpretation of British gardens'.

CREATURES OF COMFORT


Loved so many looks from this show with its neutral color palette and boyish shapes with feminine fabrics and dresses. (AND A GOLD BUCKET BAG!!! YES PLEASE)

TIBI


Velvet and crazy cool boots? This show rocked!

CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION


Raf Simmons' first collection was quite the transition from past collections but it was a success!

PRABAL GURUNG


Sheer genius

MICHAEL KORS COLLECTION


Cozy cool knits with perfect camel colored coats.

YEEZY


Season 5 may have turned me into a believer. High-rise vintage denim, hoodies, and western boots (that can all pretty much be found at a good thrift store).

CUSHNIE ET OCHS


Rich colors, rich textures at Cushnie et Ochs while 'making body-con & cut-outs look refined'. 

JASON WU


Focused a lot of attention on evening wear in celebration of his 10th anniversary in business this year. 

RAG & BONE


"Replaced its usual catwalk extravaganza with an exhibition of photographs" - LOVE LOVE LOVE!

MARYAM NASSIR ZADEH


Held in the basement of the Guggenheim this collection was quirky & cool.

RACHEL ZOE


Glamour, seventies, and a Le Smoking tuxedo with a glimmering edge. 

SELF-PORTRAIT


Self-Portrait  is always a favorite for their feminine designs. This season however they went for a glam rock twist that was beautifully executed!

Now onto London Fashion Week... x
